To Go or Not to Go... THAT is the question!

Mmmm… I don’t know if it would be a good idea to stow away or not. Saturday was an awesomely BEAUTIFUL day, though a storm was due to blow in, so Grammy and Papa had decided to go camping NEXT week.

Since it WAS such a wonderful day, they decided to go for a drive up the mountains behind us because they knew there would be a ton of wildflowers out.

They took Mama, BG and me with them, and we drove up the mountains west of us for about 20 mins. (driving slowly) looking at all the beautiful colors and flowers. When we came down the other side, we made a turn and drove for about 10 minutes in a place called Carrizo Plain National Monument . We stopped at a lookout place with lots of open space to run and check out "fuzzie" homes while we walked with Papa and Grammy up to the actual overlook.

We had a LOT of fun… Grammy was pretty upset about her camera being broken so she couldn’t take pictures. She has to put in pictures from their website of what we saw. You see, that set of small mountains you see in these snow pictures of our place a month or so ago... well, just over them is that Carrizo Plains area, but you have to go around the mountain to get there.

The thing is, we were gone for about 4 hours with the drive up and back and the stopping at the places they wanted to look at and walk in.
Even though we got out several times, by the time we were coming home, I started getting a weird feeling. It was like something wasn’t right. I got all nervous and shaky. I don’t know if it was from the smell of the oilfield we had to drive through near the last of the drive, or if I was just missing my master.

Once I got back on the road I recognized, then I calmed down and felt better, but it makes me wonder if I should leave my master behind for that long of a time. I almost always sleep with him in his room (unless it’s extra cold, and then I snuggle down between Grammy and Papa). I wonder if I wouldn’t be able to sleep if I didn’t know he was there near me.

I REALLY hate to miss out on anything that Mama and BG get to do. I talked to my master, and he said that he will probably be going up to where they are going to camp for part of one day, and maybe we can take Grammy’s Little Bear since they are coming down that weekend too, and Grammy doesn’t want to miss him. He is the only kid I really like… So maybe I should stay home and just go when he goes…

I just don’t know... I’m kind of mad at Grammy anyway right now. I found a wonderful new perfume yesterday to put on, and rolled it firmly into my face and neck, but when I came into the kitchen at Mimi’s after church, everyone cleared the room holding their noses. Grammy snatched me up so fast and gave me ANOTHER BATH!!!

Good Grief!!! Now I can't do a thing with my ruff... It's all fluffy!!! You would think they would let me find my own perfume!!! That old, dead diaper didn’t mind sharing!

Sorry about the layout... I tried about 5 times to redo it and resave it, and it still came out this way. Dott's Grammy

It sounds like the perfect day - except for the LAST part! How DARE THEY bathe you after you took such great pains to show your appreciation by getting gussied up in that new scent! I'm sure you can think of a way to get back at them! Corgis are so very good at 'pay-backs'!!

I LOVE travelling in the car with momma, but I get scared when we get out in strange places, so I can only go on trips where I get to stay in the car.

Unclear about why grandma did not appreciate your perfume. Perhaps you did not use enough.

Sorry they made you feel like a pariah with your stink ... you'd be most welcome if you were visiting Dog Woods. We love a good stink any time ... and yeah, we get showered almost instantly too ... :P

Licks and Wags,
